Michael Shahandeh


I am gay and I am an evolutionary geneticist and behavioral biologist. //

I am a PhD candidate in the Turner research group in the department of Ecology, Evolution, and Marine Biology at UCSB. I am actively honing my skills as both a researcher and educator in pursuit of a career in academia. As a queer academic, I also work to increase LGBTQ+ visibility in STEM fields at UCSB.
